All businesses will need a template contract to assist with the recruitment process. However, companies can run into difficulty if they take the ‘one size fits all’ approach. Evidently, the work undertaken by your senior directors will vary from that done by your shop floor worker. Your contracts should reflect this to ensure that they are fit for purpose.
As employment law solicitors, we advise all our clients to give carefully crafted contracts to employees to ensure that the expectations of that employee are clear. However, they should also contain invaluable contractual protection of your key assets like your business contacts, your people and your brand.
We can prepare solid contracts for your business to protect your business and brand when your key people want to move on. We can also help you enforce these terms when you find that they are not complying with the terms of their employment agreements.
